    Hello Xsim community! I'm new here to the forums and have been reading a lot of material latley. Thank you very much for the WIKI this helps me out tremendously! After reading I have a few questions that, with your help, can be answered...

    1) I'm considering using the SCN5 (150mm) actuators, is this better than using motors considering I'm a noobie?

    2) I've read that the profiler can run not only actuators but also fans to simulate speed...How can I go about building this type of simulation?

    3) I would also like to use the video plugin and incorporate fans into my machine, will the video plugin support the actuators and the fans? if it does, how many other effects can be used with the plugin at the same time? (for example: watching a video while using the actuators, fans, and a heating system)

    4) has anyone along with fans experimented with air canons? I think it would be neat to have some type of air burst during simulation...I don't know how to go about this, one idea would be using an air compressor...has anyone considered or tried this?


    Thats it! Thank you so much for the help!
